TARO brings together historical documents, personal papers, family histories, and more from archives, libraries, and museums across Texas to inform, enrich, and empower researchers all over the world to discover information for educational and professional purposes, as well as for personal enjoyment—helping users tell their stories.


TARO fosters a culture of collaboration among Texas archives, libraries, and museums allowing participants to overcome challenges together. TARO is looking at the yet unknown needs of 21st Century researchers for interacting with content by enhancing the field of archival practice. TARO self-identifies as a community responsive to changes in technology, demographics, and resources.
